The venue was wonderful. We were in the mezzanine with great sightlines. And the sound was really good too. The Vic seats about 1600 I was told and it looked to be full to me.
As for the performance, let me just say I continue to love and respect what Todd does more and more each time I see him. Probably 40 or 50 times so far for me. This was different than any other performance I have seen. Todd's energy and ability to entertain were in high gear.
My favorites were all the new songs from Global plus I really liked Truth. I posted several videos on youtube...Evrybody, Blind, Soothe, This Island Earth, Today, Holyland.
For all the crap I have heard spewn from some, I thought it was all good tonight...backup singers were entertaining, pretty much on key. I heard one comparison to TR and Frank Sinatra past his prime...after seeing the show all I can say is Geez Louise, you have got to be out of your mind to think that. I could do without the oldies sung to electronic backgrounds. But that was no big deal.
Todd was non-stop for 2 hours. Singing, dancing, playing guitar, into it. Amazing Todd, simply amazing. I am proud to call you on of my heroes! Mahalo.
